SHOCK REPORT Feds Tapped Trump's Lawyers Phone
President Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen had his phones wiretapped by federal investigators, according to a new report by NBC News.

The report, citing one source with direct knowledge, said at least one call between the White House and a phone line associated with Cohen was intercepted.

According to NBC News, it is unclear how long the phone had been wiretapped or when it was authorized, but sources tell the outlet that it was in place leading up to an FBI raid on Cohen's home and office last month. 

The report comes as Cohen is under investigation for paying adult film-star Stormy Daniels $130,000 ahead of the 2016 presidential election to stay silent about her alleged affair with Trump.
